Castle Rock 2

A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King's best-loved works.

The series weaves an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland.

The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King's literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories (Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption) are set in there.

Castle Rock is an original suspense/thriller - a first-of-its-kind reimagining that unites King's themes and worlds, and brings together the author's most iconic and beloved characters.

In Season 2, a feud between warring clans comes to a boil when budding psychopath Annie Wilkes (Lizzy Caplan), Stephen King's nurse from hell, gets waylaid in Castle Rock.

Ruby's confidence has grown but she's about to face a huge test. She handles a complex medical case, as a storm hits Barco and the hospital's generator fails.

Will Ruby decide to operate on her patient by candle light and with no monitors? It's a test that would shake the most experienced of doctors.

And it will leave Lydia wondering if she pushed Ruby too far too soon.
